Sadly, this time its bad news. The first case of the H5N2 virus was detected on one ostrich farm in Oudtshoorn in April this year, resulting in the culling of approx. 5 000 birds in one week in an attempt to stop the spread of the virus. Luckily, the virus is not harmful to humans, but the head count is now standing at 25 000 birds culled since April! There are renewed calls for Oudtshoorn Business Chamber to find a solution to contain the aivan flu outbreak after three new cases were detected in the last week, two near Volmoed and one just outside Oudtshoorn.

An indigenous example of big cat breeding is located in Oudtshoorn where the Cheetah breeding grounds can be found to the north, between the Cango Caves and the CBD. The cheetah breeding grounds here are one of only two such projects in the Southern Hemisphere, making the Cango Wildlife Ranch a definite must see when you're visiting the Klein Karoo.

One of the reasons why I love town planning as a profession and concept is that it can actually change the way people move through and understand space! Isn’t that incredible?! So much responsibility, and so much opportunity to use design to influence people’s lives!
The title of World Design Capital has been awarded biennially since 2008, by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID) to cities that are dedicated to using design for social, cultural and economic development. Coming in the top three puts Cape Town's creative and knowledge economies firmly on the map! The winning city will be announced in Taipei on the 26 October 2011.
May the most innovative city (*cough*Cape Town) win!

The site was established in 2009 by alumni of graduate urban policy and international development programmes at the London School of Economics (LSE). Its a great point of reference for anyone interested in why there is such divergence in urban development.
